Santa Monica Proper offers a series of Kelly Wearstler-designed flexible space, including four meeting rooms, a ballroom, courtyards and terraces, and the area’s only rooftop pool-deck-restaurant with panoramic ocean views. Proper’s events team offers multi-layered personalization, with market-driven catering menus for indoor and outdoor meetings, weddings, special events, and private dining. Anything less wouldn’t be Proper.

Canela Ballroom

Designed by Kelly Wearstler to make a subtle but impressive statement, the Canela Ballroom offers a distinctive, beautifully lit space for casual and formal occasions, complete with pre-function foyer and dedicated elevator bank.

Converge

Off the second-floor corridor, west-facing Converge is light and bright, with glass walls and doors opening onto a planted courtyard with colorful city views. A slab bar with antiqued mirror backsplash, as well as the indoor-outdoor setting, creates a flexible space to mix business meetings with social reception.

Surge

The more intimate Surge is a bright setting with one handsome boardroom table. In addition to A/V capability including Apple TV, natural elements abound: grasscloth walls, hardwood flooring and doors revealing a lush courtyard with colorful city views.

What is Proper?

Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused, energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is an inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From music and art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
